Sad...

But generally Alaskan State Troopers are pretty respectful and not nearly as tyrannical as cops in the lower '48. Of course that's just from my experience watching the show "Alaskan State Troopers." :)

They seem to have more patience in dealing with people up there - especially given that at least 50% of the Alaskan population are probably criminals of some type.

This guy gives all of them a bad name.

Does anyone have Wikipedia editing access here? (I don't.)

If yes, may I request entry about this case to be added to following article:

BTW, while looking over this article I came across following recent event from Colorado. Do a google search for "Jason Alan Kemp Ivan Lawyer Fourth Amendment" if interested, reading about it gave me chills.

Regarding the YouTube video of the arrest in Kodiak, Director of Alaska State Troopers, Col. Keith Mallard has stated to the public and news media that all complaints of employee conduct are taken seriously. He has viewed the video and requested an investigation be completed into the incident by the Office of Professional Standards.

The Office of Professional Standards is investigating all of these allegations. This office reports directly to the highest level within the Commissioner’s Office at the Department of Public Safety. As is AST’s practice that anytime it receives a complaint, no matter how small or egregious, AST takes them very seriously, looking into the totality of the event thoroughly to determine the proper course of action.

At this time, AST is awaiting the results of that investigation. Otherwise, the criminal case will play out in the Alaska Court System.

We need to put a fund together for her

PubLic defenders suck.

I'll donate if someone can figure how to put the thing together.

Not necessarily

Some PD's may be less than dilligent but my experience is the opposite. Trying cases all day every day gives them a lot of experience with judges and prosecutors. They usually get as good or better results than retained counsel and at least in VA don't get paid squat. I've done both. I once tried a negligent homicide case - a four hour trial - and got a princely fee of $112. (I won).

The real problem is with the cops. No judgment. Ultra thin skinned. A lot on sadistic power trips. The girl here also made the cardinal mistake of letting the cops in to begin with and then compounding it by talking to them. The cop assaulting her of couse is without justification and a total over reaction. But this happens all the time in the 'hood.

Thetis

It looks like one of the

It looks like one of the police assaulted her. First he committed the assault then he doubled down and moved to arrest her. The delay between those two actions is a dead giveaway that he knew he was never in danger. If there was any justice he should lose his job, serve a short time in jail, and be forced to pay the victim some reasonable compensation.

The other officer who assisted in the illegal arrest didn't do anything criminal. He left the house when asked, and there's no way he could have seen the initial assault, even if he was facing the door. When he reentered the house he wouldn't have any reason to believe an arrest was unjustified. In my opinion nothing that one did was assault because it was reasonable for him to believe that his aggression was justified, and he didn't use excessive force.

let's keep this bumped..

looks like the girl is using a public defender. Can we set up a legal fund to help her fight this and raise money to defeat the mayor if he does not fire these cops? Let's start fighting this...see my post below to see how....thnx

Feeding Time

Feeding time for the courts/prison system, this is the only explanation for them "piling" on the charges when someone gets arrested.
When was the last time you saw someone arrested and charged for one offense? NO, They stack additional charges on so they can make more money for "THEIR TIME" of going to the hassle of filing a report.
This is total nonsense and this is plain and simple police brutality and these dirty cops need to be help accountable.
Hey COPS, no matter how annoying I might be to you, You are still under oath to protect my "rights" and one of my rights is the right to disagree with you.
Some COPS seem to think when they slip into that uniform, it's their right to become darth vader, or some other evil villian.

Mayor Branson,

Watch our “public SERVANTS” in action,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_hCd9uwsng&feature=player_em...

The “policemen” in this video are no more than criminals… What a pathetic display of tyranny and usurpation of authority by public servants who swore an OATH to uphold the constitution of the united states of America. The actions in the video are an unconstitutional act upon a consenting adult who’s Liberty (self-ownership) is supposed to be PROTECTED by the SUPREME LAW of this land (Preamble to the Constitution, “…to secure the BLESSINGS of Liberty...”). TECHINCALLY, the officer, who INITIATED FORCE upon another person that has not violated anyone else’s unalienable rights, VIOLATING their OATH (a promise or vow on your LIFE), should be hung from the tallest tree in the village or beheaded in a public setting. It is in your best interest to relieve these goons of their duty, immediately.

Facts of the case
She went to close the door.
He pushed her down to the ground.
He held her hostage.

He turned a non-violent situation into violence.
She tried to stand up to usurpation of authority as required by our Constitution.

All that is needed for evil to prevail is for good people to say and do nothing. Choose wisely.

Seriously,
A concerned human being

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

bump

for activism

More fascist behavior.

The sad part is that they will get away with it yet again.

at the end the homeowner asks the cops

why they were in his house in the first place and another lady said she let them in because they said they asked to search it! How stupid was that? Doesn't she know cops are like vampires and need permission to enter? (unless it's the new 'shelter-in-place crap) I'm not defending the cops in any way - I couldn't hear what the cop replied but the kid taping said they were looking for marijuana. The cop only said there was a 911 call, as far as I could hear. But did they produce a warrant to search the house? That's never mentioned. The homeowner said that the 911 was false so why don't they arrest that person and the cops didn't say a word.
Alaska Constitution mirrors exactly the US Constitution 4th Amendment
Section 1.14 - Searches and Seizures.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses and other property, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated. No warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Also Alaska Constitution
Section 1.19 - Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The individual right to keep and bear arms shall not be denied or infringed by the State or a political subdivision of the State.
Section 1.22 - Right of Privacy.
The right of the people to privacy is recognized and shall not be infringed. The legislature shall implement this section. [Approved August 22, 1972]

People need to know their state's Constitution. Not all of them have the Peoples' rights spelled out.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Jail

Why is that cop not in jail. He need be punished and fired. lawless little prick.

can anybody get the police report

do they post online, or do you have to order one?

I am curious to know what BS the cop makes up.

Looks like Brutality to me

This is flat out 100% Police Brutality and its good someone was recording these Dirty Cops abusing this young lady.
If she had committed a "crime" then she should had been arrested "immediately" when the police showed up.
What's this Elffin Dialog with the Cops? What's with that?
You're in denial, blah blah blah, etc.
My GOD, if the lady commited a crime then tell her and arrest her for her crime...But, you do have an obligation to tell her what she's being arrested for.
Hey COPS, you are suppose to be "upholding" this lady's civil and Constitutional rights regardless of how annoying she might be to you...Recall the OATH you swore when you wanted to be Gung-Ho Cop?
A COP needs to pay dearly whenever they treat someone like this.
I could not watch anymore after they man-handled her into the car.
What a total waste of taxpayer's money.
Let's start an email campaign to the Mayor, and Maybe the Chief of Police, Sheriff, or whoever.
One of these days a real patriot is gonna stand up for the rights of their family member and refuse to be treated like this.

one more thing...

when cops ask you a question, you're answer should be....

"I'm sorry officer, I would love to talk to you but I just don't have anything to say" (then shut up)

If you are told that you must answer then your response to any question should be....

"I am sorry officer, I can't recall" or "I don't know"

Never, never, never

talk to the police (invoke your 5th amendment right to remain silent). Without a warrant, never, never, never allow the police into your home. The Supreme Court ruled the police can lie to you. Assume, always, the police are lying to you. Unfortunately, today, the police are not our friends.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_ckcdtQ95w

This is best series of videos on how to handle the police I've viewed.

Do ya'll want to stop this type of stuff?

Ok. Here is how we do it.

Firstly, dealing with the cops is a waste of time because they do not care and they are trained to behave this way. Rarely are they ever punished. So here is what needs to be done.

Everytime, this happens we need a massive phone and email campaign to the local mayor...an elelected official that definitely cares what you think. Make sure that the mayor knows that if does not fire the cop then a massive effort will be made to defeat him in his next election. A couple thousand dollars and a decent grass roots effort can turn a mayoral election pretty easily in most small towns.

Pit the mayor against the police for a little divide and conquer. And do it every time, every where until it stops.

Let's start with this case right hear....someone give us the mayor's contact info and let's get started.

good idea.

Let's see who finds it first.

Can you post this again...

at the top of the page? (Some are new, and this will keep dropping until it falls to 2nd page )

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis

Looks to me ...

Looks to me like Ms. Mayor has an election coming up this Fall.

"Mayor Branson was elected by Kodiak voters to a two-year term in October 2011."

I would be she will want this quieted down pretty soon.

This Is

Hard to hear. Why were they in her house?

Everyone Should Learn From This

The next time you encounter the police just say four little words "I Don't Answer Questions" and NOTHING ELSE!!! If she would have done that none of this would have happened.

REMEMBER the police engage you to prosecute you!

No matter what they ask

No matter what they ask reply: do I have a right to remain silent... over and over again...
